Dort Financial Credit Union has extended a helping hand to the community since its founding in 1951. We are honored to be a part of this community and the surrounding counties as well, through our philanthropy and volunteer efforts.
Dort Financial is grounded in the credit union philosophy of “people helping people” and building throughout the community. In 2019 alone, Dort Financial donated to, volunteered at, or sponsored more than 300 community events. From handing out promotional items at Flint City Bucks and Flint Firebirds games and sponsoring banners and scoreboards at local schools, to hosting bi-annual blood drives and raising funds for Hurley Children’s Hospital through campaigns, you can count on Dort Financial Credit Union to make a lasting impact on all aspects of the community.
Our team members have celebrated hometowns in community parades and festivals, sorted and packed boxes of food for the Food Bank of Eastern Michigan, raised awareness of the struggles foster children face with Whaley Children’s Center, crafted care packages for children in emergency situations with the United Way, traveled to area high schools to participate in financial reality fairs, and contributed to many other community events.
We are truly thankful to have such hard-working and giving team members that choose
Dort Financial Credit Union is honored to announce they have been nominated and selected as a winner for the 2018 Governor’s Service Awards in the Corporate Community Leader category. The Governor’s Service Awards are given annually by the Governor of the State of Michigan to individuals, organizations and businesses to acknowledge their commitment to serving their communities through volunteerism. “This year’s winners have inspiring stories. They have made a tremendous impact on the lives of others through their service,” Gov. Rick Snyder said. “I am extremely grateful for the contributions they have made for Michigan and am honored to recognize their incredible accomplishments.”
In 2017 alone, Dort Financial Credit Union donated to, volunteered at, and/or participated in nearly 100 events and charities in the community. This has led to countless hours of volunteer work by employees, 45 pints of blood donated, and over $19,000 raised personally from employees and donated to charities. Dort Financial Credit Union does not implement a required volunteer program. The time that employees of the organization put towards charities are all in kind nature. Nearly continuous staff involvement goes extremely far in bettering the communities we live, work, attend school, worship and volunteer in.
